Pula is a real beauty...........especially this morning I needed that since we had another 4 inches of snow on top of all of the other dirty black messy stuff piled 8 ft. high in the barnyard. This has been nasty. Thanks so much.

I had a nice surprise today. Two of my streps have decided to bloom again. I had re-potted them and cleaned them up a few weeks ago and thought it would take them awhile to adjust. Here is Salmon Sunset and Frosty Patterns showing me their beauty this morning.

So nice to know I did something right. These lovelies are still new to me and I learn something new every day.

March, 2014 and two of my darling streps are blooming for me. This is so special because this is a first since repotting and cutting them back. I was so afraid I would hurt them.

They are tougher than most think JB. They actually get stimulated by doing this.

Spin Art is notorious for having an occasional solid flower. Don't give up on this one! Even being a solid color it is a beautiful red.

I am glad you told me that. I was a bit taken back when I saw the flower. I wondered what I did and meant to ask you but I was really busy yesterday and forgot. Thanks for telling me. You are also a mind reader. Rolling on the floor laughing

Did you see the plants on eBay Daryl Hoover (I think that is his name HooversHybrids) has up for auction. He has a few that are going for pretty good money.

Yes, it's getting to be crazy bidding season! LOL

Everyone who has spring fever, did not order due to the cold and the seasonal buyer are coming out of hibernation! Prices will get much higher now thanks to the crazy bidding.

I was beginning to worry when the second solid flower came up, but here is the third. Back to normal now. Thank Goodness. Spin babies looking good too.

This shows the difference better I think. Sorry about the lighting on this.

Patience pays off JB, especially with fantasy blooms. They can very unpredictable and many sport to a solid color at times for no known reason. Fortunately, there are only a few that stay solid. I have had JJ's Redhead Fantasy do this to me a few times even when I got a division from a true blooming plant.

I'm happy to see yours is blooming true now. It is a gorgeous fantasy when it blooms true. Hurray!

They only started to do this after I transplanted them and messed with their roots. Hmmmm? Teaching me a lesson I guess.

S. Sashenka, S. Keigetsu, and S. Frosty Patterns..I love the lavender colors.
